I’ve got another book burning a hole in my pocket … isn’t that what you say when you have money you just have to spend??

anyway, before I tell you how you can win this copy, I want to publicly thank the thirteen women who are featured in chapter three of Photo Freedom. All of these women have taken Library of Memories at BPS and when contacted, eagerly shared their experiences and adaptations and I am so grateful for their willingness to share and even more than that their confidence to take my ideas and make them their own — I can’t wait for you to see how others are making this system work for them!

Each of them will be receiving a book (so don’t go buy it) and a set of three Little Miss Matched socks to encourage them on in creative freedom.

Thanks Girls!!

When Cathy designed the book, she found an illustrator to draw a "little stacy" that is wearing mis-matched socks (how cute is she?) and so I thought that it might be fun for you to guess how many Little Miss Matched socks I actually own — keep in mind these socks are sold in sets of three — please know too that I do occasionally show restraint (this means I don’t own more than 10 sets)

ready? set? guess …

first one right (and I’ll be checking this evening) wins!!

p.s. by the way, I’m not answering email whilst in the midst of this studio purge — so, if I owe you an email, I’ll start back tomorrow (yikes.)

I will guess 5 sets of socks!

My guess is 24 socks (8 sets)! They look cute – I might have to get some!

I’ll guess 21!

Do you have 4 sets? That would make for an even 12 socks!

I am going with 8 sets

I’ll guess 9 sets.

ah… someone got my guess… how about 9?

Ok, six sets – 36 socks….

I guess 18 – 6 sets!

ok…7

6 that would 18 sock right??

Fingers crossed

Teresa

My guess is 6 sets!

This is fun!

I guess 7 sets!

3?

10

okay I think it is 9 sets

I am guessing 20 socks because one must be lost at all times in my house.

I guess 4 sets.

My guess is 2 sets I love fun socks!

9 sets = 27 socks!

I don’t really think it’s 2, but it’s the best answer left because I know it has to be more than one!

Happy Tuesday!!! Dying to get my hands on this book!!!

Lisa

15 socks?

8 sets, so 24 socks.

Have you seen the adorable little coin purse socks they just came out with? Love them!

I’m gonna guess 10 sets!

18???

Did anyone say ten sets yet? So 30 socks? You said you didn’t have more than 10 so maybe…

Can’t wait to meet you in VA – I’ll be taking your class at Get Croppin’ I’m SO excited!

I am going to guess 7 sets or 21 socks.

18???

I’m going to guess 30 socks. You did say you didn’t have more than 10 sets so I guess exactly that. Did anyone say that yet?

Can’t wait to meet you in VA at Get Croppin’. I’m taking your class and I’m so excited!

I’m going to guess 17 socks… six sets minus one missing sock!

15 socks!

Ohhh..a lost one. My next guess is 23.

I’m going to guess 5 sets, becuase you’re giving some away!

I have to say four sets=12 socks since no one has said that yet. Fingers crossed!

Hi Stacy, I’m Joanne T, one of the contributors you selected to be in your book and I wanted to thank YOU! While I told Ali M to tell you a big thank you in September when I was told the great news, I know it was a crazy, busy time for you and I cannot imagine how many emails you get! As someone who has never posted a page to a site, to be selected to be in a SS book written by YOU was a surreal, American Idolish experience! Thanks for sharing your vision and ideas with us and I can’t wait for LOM 2008!

23 because people always tend to loose a sock along the way.

29 socks

26?

I’m going to guess 23!

6 sets!

Boohoo – don’t see my first post! 6 sets!

14 socks?

I’ll say 14 total socks which would be five total sets and one lost!

Thanks,

Margie

3 sets which equal 9 socks

I’ll guess 22 socks. You know the dryer eats some.

Now I have to guess 16 because someone beat me to my last guess!

27?

11 sock (you lost one somewhere along the way) Susan

27?

Ill guess 6 socks – 2 sets

Lets say 22

8 sets…24 socks

Has someone said 16? I’m assuming a bit of loss here.

24?

13???

i’ll guess 20

5 – sets for a total of 15

Okay, let’s try 8 socks. 3 sets and one got eaten by the washer/dryer! WEndy

I say 9 sets, so 27 socks…

I am guessing 4 sets for a total of 12 socks????

I’d say 8 sets- which makes 24 socks, an even number. Am I right? Priya

I’d say 8 sets- which makes 24 socks, an even number. Am I right? Priya

21 socks?!

10 sets = 30 socks

Seven sets – 21 socks!

10 sets = 30 socks

I will guess 7 sets for a total of 21 socks. Lucky number 7, am I right??

6 sets so 18 socks…

18 total, 6 sets.

7 sets – 21 in total!

26

oh, mine’s taken so 19 singles

My guess is 24 socks.

Sorry I hit the send button before I was ready.

7 sets for a total of 21, lucky number 7 minus the one that the washer ate for a total of 20. Am I right???

25 socks

28 single socks

I think you have three sets – 9 socks and someone as organised as you would never have garments eaten by laundry appliances !)

5 sets-15 socks

7

I will guess, 9 sets, minus 1 for being lost in laundry land. For a total of 26-LRG

14 socks

5 socks maybe?

hmm i guess i’m too late cos all the numbers pretty much have been guessed – i’ll say 11 though … 4 sets – a lost one !!!

6 sets – 18 socks

13 socks!!

I’ll guess 8

29 socks – maybe you lost one

8 sets!

My guess is 6 sets.

I’m going to guess 15 socks or 5 sets.

3

27 socks

4 sets

I’ll say 17 just because I don’t see it posted yet. But I’m sure you haven’t lost any!

ok, here’s how i got my guess of 20 socks.

7 sets, because I’m willing to bet that you’ve bought 1 set in each color of the rainbow, since you’re alllll about the color =) so, 7 sets times 3 socks each. I subtracted one just because no one is perfect… no matter how hard you try there’s always one sock missing. =)

No guess….just a thank you for the book and the socks!

4 sets minus the one you lost in the dryer (that always happens) = 11 socks!

I’m going to go with 26

looks like 26 was taken so i guess i’ll go for 23

7 sets, 21 socks….?

I’m guessing….

54.

cause I think you are a miss-matched lovin’ lady.

Heh.

My timing is off this week but that’s okay. I don’t know where I’ve been but I’ve never heard of these socks. How cute!

Sue

4 sets

9 sets

3 sets

i’ll guess 24 socks.

Boy, I need to get on the computer faster!!! I am going to say that you have 14 socks.

Well, thanks for the socks Stacey and the book. It is truly an honor and very flattering to have been asked to contribute to your book and I can’t wait to see it. I’m on board for LOM again to refine the process……hope to see you at CHA!!

Donna

9 sets

Stacy: You have no idea what an honor it was to be asked to contribute to your book (can’t wait to see the book!). LOM was life-changing for me and I can’t wait to go thru it a second time and fine-tune my organizing system. As the most “matchy-matchy” person I know, it will be a fun challenge for me to actually wear mis-matched socks. I’ll take a photo as proof! Thanks again Stacy. Kathryn

Thank you Stacy for asking me to contribute to Photo Freedom! I’m signed up for LOM again to fine tune a process I use everyday. I’m excited to see the book!

See you in class

I am going to have to say six sets of socks
